Beauty Series, Part 1: Setting the Beauty Agenda

In the first of a series of conversations on beauty, NPR's Susan Stamberg talks with Linda Wells, editor of Allure magazine. Wells says Allure evolved in the past 13 years. Its magazine covers don't portray one particular type of person as beautiful all the time. She says popularity, timing and interest are all things to consider when choosing who goes on the cover of a beauty magazine.
